Christmas Night Drive Home #napowrimo

Day 4. I actually used the prompt for this one. The prompt asked us to use one of  @SpaceLiminalBot‘s photos. I realize that I should have gone for one more disconcerting than a winter road but I was afraid my fiction might take over and then where would we be? 😉 I haven’t used the original photo because I don’t know what the copyright is on it and didn’t want to run (or walk) afoul.

(I’m all caught up! Unbelievable!)

I remember that Christmas night drive
the slick streets shiny with ice
the highway with lanes of skewed cars
how silent you and I were
thinking only of home
the warmth, 
the welcoming meow of Tiki-cat
how grateful we’d be
to park safely
grab each other’s hands
embrace for life,
how we’d never forget
(only sometimes)
the joy of being alive.

  1. Skewed cars. Love it. I had a harrowing drive like this from Vail to Denver. Glad to be alive.
